This is how $100 saved monthly over the past 10 years would have fared. You would have been better off leaving you savings under the mattress than putting it in equities. But don't bet on keeping your savings -or what remains of it- under the mattress. This might be the time to invest wisely.

And when you do invest, don't forget to use Trailing Stop Loss Orders... these have saved many from losing their shirts in this market!
